EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Cuddle up with some of your favorite characters from the classic Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with new stuffed animals from Beverly Hills Teddy Bear Company. The Rudolph and Bumble plush toys are made of a super soft material, which is why their hangtags say they are the “world's softest”. Each one is sold separately.

Based on the Abominable Snow Monster character from the classic 1964 stop-motion Rankin/Bass Christmas special, the plush version of Bumble isn't scary at all; it's cute! It features soft white fur, white hair sprouting from the top of Bumble's head, blue hands and feet, and an embroidered face. In the movie, Bumble is kind of a scary fellow who chases after Rudolph and Hermey, and holds Rudolph's parents and Clarice hostage. But at the end of the movie, Bumble has been reformed and even puts a gold star on top of Santa's Christmas tree. 

Then, there's Rudolph, based on the main character of the Rankin/Bass Christmas special. Just like in the song, the movie version of Rudolph is made fun of for having a red nose, so he runs away and ends up on the Island of Misfit Toys. But he leaves soon after arriving to return home, only to find that he must leave again to save his parents and Clarice from Bumble. And then, Rudolph's red nose guides Santa through a blizzard, and Rudolph is a hero. Kids can play out Rudolph's adventure with the Rudolph plush toy. It's made from a soft brown and white fur, with brown paws, two tiny reindeer antlers, embroidered eyes, and the character's signature red nose.

Is It Fun?

Families who like giving stuffed animals as gifts around the holidays and watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as part of their family holiday traditions will find that these two toys make great gifts for kids or adults.

The plush toys capture the look of the characters as seen in the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas special, and that will be very appealing to fans of the TV classic. Older fans will like collecting these stuffed toys as part of a Rudolph collection, while kids will like cuddling up with Rudolph and Bumble during playtime and bedtime. They'll also like holding these super soft toys while watching the movie.

Who It’s For

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Rudolph is for ages 3 and up. Fans of the classic 1964 TV special will like this stuffed animal the most, and we would definitely stress the “and up” part of the “3 and up” age range. Rudolph will be fun for kids to hold while watching the movie and creating different adventures with, but adult fans might also like to add this plush toy to their Rudolph collections.

What To Be Aware Of

The plush Rudolph and Bumble are surface-wash only.

Rudolph and Bumble are supposed to be 12-inches long, but our Rudolph measured 13 inches and our Bumble measured about 18 inches from head to toe.
